Money touches all aspects of our life. 

Whether it’s the interest rate on the money you borrow or the goals you have for the investment, you’ll make much better decisions if you are equipped with the right tools at the right time. 

Sadly, a substantial portion of the global population lacks financial literacy. Take a look at these

numbers – 

Financial Literacy Month is observed throughout the month of April to recognize the importance of financial literacy. It originated in April 2004, in the USA, as a modification of Youth Literacy Day. The move stemmed from the need to share information about the methods and techniques that can aid individuals in becoming financially literate.

Financial Literacy Month promotes, advocates for, and supports financial literacy efforts and challenges individuals to evaluate their present economic conditions and improve them.

In this blog, Goodera has compiled a comprehensive list of non-profit organizations that assist individuals, families, and communities by helping them make better financial decisions and building security. If you would like to contribute to this cause, you could lend your support to these non-profits. Have a look-
